A 54 year old janitorial services company owner will be scrubbing up in his federal prison cell for the next 25 months, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Jeffrey Comstock, 54, the owner of Frio Nevado Corporation, was last year of making up employees and submitting pay invoices for non existent workers when his company held the janitorial services contract at the Alamodome.
Federal Prosecutors say Comstock got away with the fraud for two years, ripping off $354,000 from the city, which he has also been ordered to repay.
A second employee of Frio Nevado was acquitted on all charges, pinning the blame solely on Comstock.
“This sentencing serves as a real warning to those who defraud the financial system for personal gain,” said Shane Folden, Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in San Antonio. “HSI is committed to working with its law enforcement partners to pursue thieves such as Mr. Comstock who brazenly enrich themselves through fraud. This sentence clearly holds the defendant accountable for his actions while providing the San Antonio taxpayers some relief from the fraud he committed.”
